told you so, with no election to lose, president obama in the eyes of some republicans declared the end of reaganism. >> this was really obama unbound. this speech today was an ode to big government. it was a hymn to big government. >> in other words, reagan's famous government is not the solution, government is the problem, is dead, dead, dead. what's alive now, government regulations on just about every facet of american life. >> together we determine that a modern economy requires railroads and highways to speed travel and commerce, schools and colleges to train our workers, together we discovered that a free market only thrives when there are rules to ensure competition and fair play. together we resolve that a great nation must care for the vulnerable and protect its people from life's worst hazards and misfortune. >> progressives are over the moon. msnbc's chris matthews gushed there's so much of lincoln in obama's speech, with one exception. lincoln's second inaugural speech included this famous line "with malice toward none, with charity for all, let us strive on to finish the w

republican presidency that preceded him. the country did not just choose barack hussein obama to be president. the country chose barack hussein obama to be president twice. we picked him again a second time after watching him in action for four years, and then having a very good chance to pick a new guy instead. this will never happen again. barack obama will never run for office again. and we do not know who will succeed him as president in four years. but the honoring of the office of presidency today, again, entrusted to him, will forever be a day writ large, writ large by us by our generation, our country in our time. we did this. and turning around, a stream of people going the other direction, and taking the long view, taking it in, taking a look, just one more second. we are not going to see this again. joining us now is andrea mitchell, nbc's chief foreign affairs correspondent, host of "andrea mitchell reports" on msnbc, and a person who is very good at covering inaugurations. >> thank you for that. i love it. >> you have been my lode star for all the time that you have don

and school safety. a night to remember for the obamas and for the nation that re-elected the president. i'm steve handelsman, nbc news, washington. >>> president obama never used the words "democrat" or "republican" in his second inaugural address, but his political message was clear, progressive policies along with a directive for leaders that define us as individuals and as a country. >> the commitments we make to each other through medicare and medicaid and social security, these things do not sap our initiative, they strengthen us. they do not make us a nation of takers. they free us to take the risks that make this country great. we will respond to the threat of climate change. knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations. we, the people, still believe that enduring security and lasting peace do not require perpetual war. and we must be a source of hope to the poor, the sick, the marginalized, the victims of prejudice. our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law. our journ

president biden and president obama, have been received by republicans, but also by some democrats. does it surprise are you? is congress, democrat and republican, out of step with what people think about guns and gun controls and the place for guns in society today? >> you know, i don't know. you've got to recognize, and i think president clinton spoke to this recently. there's a great tradition of weapon ownership, responsible weapon ownership in our country. in my state, there for sure is. i own a weapon, i respect the second amendment. but i also understand as a parent, you have to have a common sense approach making sure that guns don't get into the hands of people who are crazy -- that's not the right term to use, people who have serious mental issues, and people that shouldn't have them, that are prohibited under the law since 1968. senator cruz and others have to make sure we deal with the fa facts. if we deal with the facts, i think we can get to a universal background check, which we should have had long ago. it actually gives purpose to the 1968 gun control act, which says tha

[applause]. >> the president spoke on climate change more than any other issue in the inaugural address. >> a little surprising because this isn't an issue that he focused a lot on in the campaign. but maybe not so surprising because presidents do start to think about the legacy in the second term. >> last 4 years have been extremely disappointing for those of us working on climate crisis. on the flip side if president obama is sincere the proof will be in what he does over the next 4 years and the

right now. i think it is pretty clear to republicans that their retreat last week and democrats in washington, the american people would blame the republicans much more so than they would blame president obama. the numbers that were touched on earlier in terms of the personal popularity as well as the job approval for the presidents far outstrip the republican majority in the house and congress over all. so there's just no question that right now republicans are we calibrating trying to figure out how they can play this game in no way that helps them. what they're hoping is that a two month hiatus, which is what they will get by giving the debt ceiling increase for that much longer, i will allow them to say to a majority of the american people, this is where they listen. there needs to be cuts in this budget. it's too big, the deficit to my commanding gauges the economy. melissa: they were you are. don't move. i want to talk to you about what kneele just brought up. the debt ceiling debacle and those comments from chuck schumer. all of that after the break. the staggering death tol

way that will help them in the polls. obama has the upper hand on it. the republicans have not come together to figure out the best way for them to move forward and get the public behind them. guest: one of the most interesting political failures of obama's first term was his inability to use the coalition he built for his first election. for purposes of rallying public opinion behind issues like healthcare. the obama for america structure did not have the same kind of punch outside of a presidential election year that it did in 2008 and 2012. it will be interesting to see if they figure out how to unlock that forced and make it work this time. host: is that due to the agenda of the first term rather than not effectively using them? some pointed to the speech citing, liberal,. rists.r guest: those things dovetailed together. his grassroots support is more liberal than centrisrt. host: in "the new york times" -- guest: that is true. political cycles start much earlier than they have in the past. it is always hard to predict how long a presidential impact will last. if the democrats w

the republicans are dealing with a somewhat different barack obama. you could feel it today. it's been coming for some days, i think, that in the first term he was yes, sometimes timid, trying to be conciliatory. now in the way he has turned today and said give me a moment, i want to take in this view again, because i'll never see this again, he now sees this four years is going to decide what history says about what he did as president. he is already a historical figure, the first person of color to become a president and then be reelected as president, obviously. but now he is talking about what the history is going to say of what he actually accomplished in his eight years in office. and let's pray to god he does have the eight years in office. a recent columnist "the new york times" said -- asked the question are we now looking at the democratic party's equivalent of ronald reagan and what ronald reagan did for the conservatives and for the republican party in the 1980s. i think the answer is we may well be. >> it certainly seems like that is what he is aiming at. and i had re
